Post Holiday Plans...
I've been engaged for nearly 4 months now and I am yet to step foot into a David's Bridal or Bridal bouquet. Back in November, Aaron and I decided to set aside the wedding planning to focus on Christmas. Our family and friends (everyone practically) was going to be busy this holiday with buying presents, making New Year's Eve plans, and dealing with the snowy conditions. I didn't want to burden anyone with wedding talk.
First of the Year...
Christmas is over though and by the end of this week, it'll be 2010. Needless to say, it's time to get back to the wedding planning and move forward full speed. One of the first things I hope to do in 2010 is attend a bridal show in Richmond, VA, which is where I went to college. The Richmond Bridal Show and Wedding Expo is Sunday, January 10th and I think it's going to be a great event to kick off an exciting (and busy) year of planning.
During the first weekend of Feburary, there's a Watters Trunk Show in Richmond, VA, as well, that I would like to attend. WATTERS, maker of some very GOREGOUS gowns is my all-time favorite dress designer. I don't know if I'll find the dress at this trunk show, but again, this is another event I plan to attend to keep the wedding planning rolling.
To Do List
In the meantime, the most I can do is what I have been doing and that is compile my inspirational images and vent out my deepest desires and frustrations on this blog. I hope anyone who has been reading my blog (I know there's at least one or two of you out there, thank you so much) has enjoyed all that I've had to say.
My hope is that in 2010, I'll be blogging on other wedding blogs, like DCNearlyWeds (I start with them next week), Wedding Bee (brides may only apply 8 months prior to their wedding and we're not there yet) and Style Me Pretty, which would be a stretch, but a DREAM COME TRUE. I'm applying today with my fingers crossed! All of which will hopefully bring some recognition to Olive Weddings.
I'd also to give Olive Weddings a facelift. I'd like the revamp the layout, so that it's easier to follow me. I also plan to figure out what's wrong with our comments section! I desperately need feedback, so fixing that is at the top of my list.
Ready, Set, Go!
Here are a few photos I fell upon on Polka Dot Bride yesterday. I love these bridesmaid dresses. I like the colors and the style (in both weddings). What do you think? Which style do you prefer? I really like both types of dresses -- the long and silky, as well as the tea length gown. Which colors do you prefer? I like the orange and burgundy, but I really like the campagne colors too.
I hope my girls are excited to start trying on stuff and making selections! I am rearing and ready to go! If you're a bridesmaid and reading this, which gown would you prefer?
